Chûn Quoit

Chûn Quoit

Chûn Quoit is the best preserved example of a quoit, or chambered tomb, in Cornwall, dating from the Neolithic period between 4000 to 3000 BC.

The name derives from the Cornish ‘Chy-an-Woone’, meaning ‘the House on the Downs’. The nearby Chûn Castle is an iron age hillfort dating from the 2nd or 3rd century BC.
